Charles W. Eliot

Wish List


We are always in need of poster tape to hang up local notices from area non-profits.


We would love to offer e-books through our catalog but need $500 in computer set-up fees in order to make this possible.  We do not have funds for this within our $6,200 book, DVDs, audio-book and materials annual budget.  Donations toward this fund are most welcome.  As soon as we reach our goal we will begin to order e-books for our patrons to access through our on-line catalog.

Books, books, DVDs!

Be sure to check our catalog before ordering.  We are in need of new, unabridged audio-books as well as print books, especially award winners.  You can call the library for titles which are currently outstanding on our patron wish list.

  • DVDs of movies for families, children, adults - If you have a movie classic (or a recent release), that you would recommend to others, we would love it for our collection.  Anything from Arsenic and Old Lace to any of the recent Oscar winners would be welcome on shelf-space-saving DVD format.  Thank you for thinking of us!

Our DVD collection is heavily used and the vast majority of what we have is through the kindness of your donations.  Thank you.
